Drake Denies Jhené Aiko Collaboration Is Called “Momentous Occasions”


Drake hasn’t talked too much about his new album, Nothing Was The Same. Two months ago that all changed when he surprised us with a tweet in response to a fan asking about Jhené Aiko. In the tweet, he wrote, “Jhene On NWTS. Momentous Occasions.”

The news was well-received by fans who wanted to see the two put together a proper collaboration. In a recent interview with Aiko in Fuse, she talked about her time in the studio with Drizzy. She didn’t speak about it at length, but she did mention working with him was a “momentous occasion.”

“I think he is amazing, like a magical being for me, like a unicorn or something. He is somebody I like to listen to to get inspired and helps me write from an honest place. Recording that song was more of a personal experience because we sat with [Drake producer Noah] 40 [Shebib] and I got to help pick the beat, take it home and record to it. That was more of a collaboration than other tracks I’ve done.”

Earlier this morning, Drake set the record straight by tweeting “Momentous Occasions” is a “terrible” song title. Although we still don’t know what the song is called, he considers it one of his favorites off Nothing Was The Same.

According to the OVO leader in our 150th issue, he hopes to stand tall amongst legends. If he’s really set on claiming the throne, we might just have to watch him take it. “I think I am going for it, to really establish what are murmurs or things being said quietly, “Um, I think that Drake might actually…” On September 17 I want people to be like, “Oh, we were right.”
